Statuette of Amon-Min


Bronze statuette of Amon-Min

The bronze statuette represents a god with specific characteristics of the god Amun and of the ithyphallic god Min. The god wears the traditional crown of Amun, a modius on which rest the two ostrich feathers, and is represented mummiform; also leads the ritual beard and grasps the nekhekh scourge, symbol of power.
At the height of the neck is preserved part of the ring for suspension, which then characterizes the bronze as an amulet.
Because of the corroded surface are almost wiped out the facial features and details of the headgear.
